Australian Animals


We are continuing to look at animals from Australia. You may need to use some of your knowledge and information gathered from last week.


Use the animal Facts from last week to create your own animal fact files. There are some templates for you to use. 


When sharing our information about an animal, it is important to cover 4 areas.

1. Classification - What is the animal called? What type of animal is

   it? (Mammal, Fish, Reptile, Bird, Amphibian, Insect, etc)

2. Habitat - Where does it live? Which country? Which

   environment? (land, sea, desert, mountains, grassy plains, etc)  

3. Description - What does it look like? Does it have fur, scales, 

   feathers? Colour? Size? Some Australian animals even have a 

   pouch! (Key word - Marsupials)

4. Behaviour - What does it do? What does it eat? When does it 



You can also find out more about the animals and try to sort them into different groups using the worksheets.
